the universe is unraveling.
i try to answer.


download. (https://mega.nz/#!ATR12DIb!T-Yq73cxSrbuzqQG9gATwIscVjsGCIa7uVfVghhGgCM)

soundtrack. (https://allisonfleischer.bandcamp.com/album/unshackled-ost)

Installation:
Note: This level requires VVVVVV version 2.2 or later.
Also, make sure that in "Game Settings" the soundtrack is set to PPPPPP, otherwise music won't play.

Changelog:

v1.4
* Victoria's room in the ship now matches its damaged state at the end of VVVVVV
* Tweaked dialogue at the end of area 2
* Most dialogue in area 4 no longer halts the player
v1.3
(modifies tiles2.png)
* Fix crash in the Linux version of VVVVVV
v1.2
* Fix cutscene bars bug
v1.1
* Fix bug where empty spaces appear in map at start



This short level has been in development for a very long time. It was supposed to be a Halloween level, but was delayed a bit so it's ended up releasing at Christmas instead. Despite the tonal incongruity with the yuletide atmosphere, I hope you enjoy it.

yup as expected the level was amazing
the music is super good and really helps with the atmosphere of each area
all of the mechanics introduced were incredibly unique as well which was amazing
i also think that the graphics were very well done and fit perfectly with the regular VVVVVV graphics while still feeling unique
i don't want to spoil anything but... just wow

Very well made. I love the custom textures and soundtrack, but not my cup of tea...  :viridian:

It's come to my attention that this level breaks in the Linux version of the game. I'm really sorry for missing something so big, and I'll try to get a fix out asap!

EDIT: This is fixed in 1.3. This is the only thing it changes, so if you don't use Linux you don't need to update.

Don't feel bad.  It's just a solid level in its own right, with an interesting plot and my favourite custom soundtrack in any VVVVVV map.

Thanks! I just uploaded the soundtrack if you want to listen to it separately: https://alekfleischer.bandcamp.com/album/unshackled-ost

Welp. Pack it up everyone, no more level making, the best one is already done. It's all downhill from here.

Seriously though, this was amazing. Especially the music. One minor bug - it doesn't seem to loop, I had to save and reload a couple of times to keep the music going.

Just... damn. Especially that last glitchy section was a lot of fun.

11/10

Make sure you have MMMMMM.vvv in the same directory as vvvvvvmusic.vvv

I think everyone in the tiny niche that would play this already has, but nevertheless I just pushed one last update to fix a couple issues.

* Victoria's room in the ship now matches its damaged state at the end of VVVVVV
* Tweaked dialogue at the end of area 2
* Most dialogue in area 4 no longer halts the player
